Description:
New York Central Railroad Tugboat No. 13 is a railroad tug boat built in 1887 in Camden, New Jersey by John A. Dialogue and Sons.

Other vessels built by John A. Dialogue and Sons include:



It is currently undergoing extensive renovation at Garpo Marine in Tottenville, Staten Island.

This tugboat was built for the New York Central Railroad to push barges, called car floats, carrying railroad cars and other freight across the waterways of New York Harbor.

It originally had a steam engine of 232 horsepower, but that engine was replaced with two General Motors 6-110 diesel engines in the 1950s. In 1965, GM Diesel became the Detroit Diesel Engine Division. The two engines sit back-to-back and drive a central Falk gearbox, which turns the single propeller. Two new keel coolers from Fernstrum have been installed in a recessed box in the hull to cool these engines.

The hull is riveted and made of wrought iron.
